Dumball 2008 - Mission: Corfu

This is The Dumball Rally 2008.

It's when a load of not-so-rich, not-so-famous people get together in their fancy rubbish cars and drive ... all across Europe - just about the opposite of the rubbish Gumball.

Why let the rich and famous have all the fun? Dumball is one of those drunken pub ideas that actually happened.

This year we're fundraising for War Child:

Breakdown No. 1

3 miles from home, complete cooling system water on the A3 following a
jubilee clip failing on the radiator.

Sent Daisy to the Honda garage over the road to beg a new clip!

Thank You Maplin!

Dumball One has picked up a small bit of corporate 'sponsorship'.

We had to pop into Maplin to get a Satnav for the whirlwind of organisation that is James "Oh, is it the Dumball today?" Addy, and while we were there we needed to get a new stereo for ourselves. They gave us the wrong model (more expensive) - but the good lads at Maplin saw the good cause in our hearts� gave it to us for the lower price (well, technically they said they were doing it to get the loud man - Nick - out of their shop).

Thanks to Ben, Jimmy, Dean and Gary at Maplin Forest Hill. Maplin. The electronics specialist.

So, in a coup of organisation, and a bit of a panic over the recent french fishymen strike causing massive queues, we're in Dover 2 hours early and are taking the opertunity to get Dumball One looking the part, and do a bit of impromptu War Child fundraising with the 'locals'.

Dumball 2008 has begun. Lets do this.

We appear to have lost Daisy.... Sorry Chaps.

This is The Dukes of Hazzard not Brokeback....

Ferry strikes, we're not worried, we' ve still got 9 borders and 3 breakdowns ahead.

Forget the big names. I scoured the Sue Ryders and Scopes of this city and couldn't find a flat cap anywhere. So where is this incredibly well stocked second hand shop?

Why, my local Bosnian charity shop, of course. We love Bosnia. Let's hope the feeling's mutual in a few days time...

Rob gets the raging horn!

'PLEEEEASE let me sit on the soft and fluffy seat covers' was Robs constant
request last night as Team Raging Horn finally found themselves in the same
place at the same time. I'd never met Captain footpedal before but the ay he
was cuddling and stroking the fake fur has left me with some serious
concerns for the coming week!

Be Afraid... I AM!

Told you! There's the old cow looking more like her usual self.

From the few I've seen so far, the cars all look absolutely amazing. Stirling work guys+gals, this is gonna be immense. General Lee are on board with the posting malarky, as are hopefully Raging Horn. Anyone else?

And we've had a request for a list of who's in each car, so here, in full, are the glorious members of Dumball 2008 - Mission: Corfu.
